Pineapple Chia With Cottage Cheese

This healthy pineapple chia recipe is perfect for breakfast, dessert, or an easy snack. You will love this recipe because although its healthy and packed with good for you ingredients, it also tastes like an absolute dream.
It’s a great make-ahead breakfast that’s packed with protein, fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids and an easy way to up your daily protein intake in a totally enjoyable way.
Creamy, rich, smooth and mousse like, it's your new favourite dessert. After trying it, I've made it countless times and I love having it on hand in the fridge when I have a craving for a ‘lil something’
I also love having chia prepared ahead of the week for a quick and easy snack, or even as a breakfast option. Its a wicked way to gain a burst of energy first thing in the morning or throughout the day!
If you have never made chia pudding before, the chia seeds gel up when setting in liquid (pineapple juice for this recipe) and hold up to 10 times their weight in liquid!
I usually make chia seed pudding with some type of milk, but one day, I decided to see how the seeds would taste soaked overnight in pineapple juice. Loved it!
To make this substantial I topped the pudding with cottage cheese and diced pineapple for a healthy, completely balanced, protein breakfast
Chia seeds don’t taste like much, so they take on the flavors of whatever they’re soaked in. The ratio of seeds to liquid is the most important part of making chia pudding.
I think it turns out best when you use two tablespoons of chia with a half cup of liquid. To really enhance the tropical flavor, add shredded coconut to the mixture for a piña colada chia pudding.
Chia seeds are so good for you.  Just two tablespoons contain four grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber, plus lots of omega-3s and calcium. Finishing off the pudding with half a cup of cottage cheese adds an extra 14 grams of protein.
This pineapple chia pudding is perfect for meal prep since it will keep in the fridge for four days. You can easily double (or triple) it and have breakfast covered for half the week!
 Made with four ingredients, it is such an easy high-protein breakfast or snack idea.
